New distributed algorithms in CPS

Parallel and distributed algorithms are largely investigated in HPC community.
However new distributed computing schemes still need to be investigated to cope
with the resource constrained embedded devices, wireless IoT communication
characteristics and real-time requirements. For example, some specific works
have been done concerning one of our topic of interest which is multi-robot
exploration. We aim at studying original distributed computing schemes to
efficiently manage the large amount of computations that is often required in
CPS applications like exploration or monitoring. Here again, some works exist
but we would like to extend our investigations on hybrid schemes, to combine
centralized and distributed computing and take into account both computing
resource and communication constraints. In the continuity of this topic, we
study also self-adaptive algorithms for CPS robustness.
